California hotel and restaurant employees settle.

In Los Angeles, CA, 6,500 workers were covered by a settlement between the 16-member Hotel and Restaurant Employers Council and the Hotel Employees and Restaurant Employees union. The new contract, effective immediately and running to April 15, 1992, replaces one that was scheduled to expire March 1, 1989. The new contract provided for nontipped employees to receive a wage increase of 50 cents an hour retroactive to June 1, 1988, a 25-cent increase in March 1989, and 35-cent increases in March of 1990 and 1991. For tipped employees, increases are 37, 15, 15, and 15 cents an hour on the corresponding dates.

The agreement also provided for transferring persons who bus tables from the tipped category to the nontipped category, resulting in a pay increase; broadening the seniority preference provision to apply to work scheduling, shifts, days off, promotions, job transfers, and bumping rights; an employer-financed legal services plan; and an employer obligation of 5 cents per hour worked for a new program of the union's choice.
